In my private clinical practice I see individuals, couples, and families. I also consult with business executives, attorneys, and other professionals in a variety of ways. As a skilled specialist in psychiatry and addiction medicine, I help people across the domains of mental health, psychological problems, behavioral issues, and treatment. I am also experienced and qualified in individual and family therapy. My mission is to help people overcome these problems and enjoy life fully.
My expertise includes diagnosis and treatment, psychotherapy, mindfulness training, positive psychology, and psychopharmacology (medications).
Frequently asked questions are answered on the FAQ Page.
Other pages describe my background, my philosophy of treatment, and my qualifications.
On the media page, check out the videos including Martin Seligman on positive psychology, Jon Kabat-Zinn on mindfulness, two enlightening talks on pseudoscience (including Bill Nye, the Science Guy), and the wise and wonderful Richard Rohr on "Breathing Under Water." If you're a healthcare professional, you'll enjoy "EHR State of Mind."
